What kind of Mushroom is this?

Hello,
I got this coral mushroom colony some time ago at the LFS. No idea what it is. Its not ricordea, as the lady wanted $20 per polyp and this whole thing was about $26.00. I should have asked, but I just pointed at it and smiled.

Here is a picture.
Thanks,
matt

Now that I look at the pic again I think they're right, they do look like yumas.

Ricordea yuma to me. That's a bland color for a yuma though and I can see the confusion.

Yea, my shrooms are ugly...My least favorite. Too bad there arent many people in my town that might want them. (They take up alot of space that could be filled with pretty stuff!)

It was an impulse buy....Oh well...It also came with a large bristle worm that disappeared.
